The Big Picture

I love the blog "The Big Picture" on Boston.com written by Alan Taylor.

One of my favorite recent posts was on the Large Hadron Collider which is apparently a "long particle accelerator straddling the border of Switzerland and France".

I'm not sure what that means exactly but these pictures are beautiful and I love how it all starts to break down into pattern. There are some great ones of the Olympic opening ceremonies too.
